Does this cover/discriminate between both wifi and data connections ?

Both will be treated as same.

Are you testing in companion?

cool i like it :+1: :smiley: :+1:

Thanks :heart_eyes:

You’re welcome :+1:


Probably it will not work during Live Test.
Because as soon as you disconnect from internet your connection to Rendezvous will also get disconnected.
It works perfectly in apk :wink:

But OnConnect works also with Companion (USB), so so add that in the description.


But it is one of those extensions who should be tested in apk :grin:

This extension has been added to my watch toolbelt! It also returns true for internet connections via bluetooth, not just data/wifi :), that is to say when its paired with my phone. Which lets me delete quite a bit of code from my projects :slight_smile:

Hi @Horacio_Spinelli
Glad to know that you liked it.
But, unfortunately, Google is limiting resources for us (Extension Developers) so the extension is currently not comaptible with API 29.
However, I have fixed it and will release an update soon.
Thank you.


Olá, sou meio leigo no app mi2 ainda, como eu poderia informar no app se tem internet ou não? a principio gostaria de testar com uma mensagem text e depois acionar um arquivo html informando que não tem conexão

Just use OnConnect and OnDisconnect events.
